Chiang Mai Family Trekking – highlight of your holiday

Thailand is a great family destination

Thailand is a fantastic destination for your family. It is relatively affordable, and it is very safe. The Thai people are very welcoming to families with children. You can’t miss Chiang Mai Family trekking on your holiday with your kids. Thailand is probably the child-friendliest country in Southeast Asia. There is a wide range of food available, hygienic standards are very high, and many hotels have family rooms. Thailand is also still great value for money. It is always very exotic and very different from Western countries, culturally as well as weatherwise. Finally, Thai people love children.

Experience with family trekking

During the European summer holidays, families have travelled to Thailand for a holiday in increasing numbers. Many of our guests come from Europe. We organised hundreds of family treks over the past twenty years. In general these treks are two day tours.

Our guides have a lot of experience and can give you and your children an unforgettable experience. The Chiang Dao East area is very suitable for families with children of all ages. There are villages of Karen, Akha, Lisu, Lahu and Palong. Between these villages there numerous roads and trails. It gives us great flexibility to customise the trip to the needs and wishes of your family. The communities where we stay overnight are used to see tourists but are still very hospitable and friendly.

Fun activities for kids

Your guide will stimulate interaction between your children and children of the village where you spend the night. We will make your overnight as comfortable as possible. Spending the night in a tribal community is a memory for a lifetime. Your guide will prepare your meals. It is always fun to help him cooking and learn to make some local dishes.

Amazingly, they can prepare delicious meals on a pure wood fire. The village where we spend the night can be reached by car, and we have emergency scenarios in case something happens. The Huay Nam Dang area is more challenging and therefore suitable for families with older children. The rafting on the Mae Taeng River is the best bamboo rafting in the Chiang Mai area.

Transportation and safety

Our family programs include transport by minivan. All the seats have safety belts. This is the safest. Possible transportation. We work with the same drivers already for many years. We trust them. Some of our tours feature a visit to an elephant-friendly venue where you can help bathe elephants and will learn about the Asian Elephant. We don’t offer elephant rides and don’t include elephant shows. Some tours feature a bamboo raft river trip. We always provide life vests. Health and safety are our biggest priorities. We regularly organise refresher first aid courses for our guides. We have a limited medical insurance for our guests.
